According to Forbes, one of the best ways  to reduce stress and improve productivity is to exercise during your lunch break.  Everyone might have their own workout schedule, but energy and concentration often dip toward midday.  So, instead of following your colleagues to Chipotle, grab a healthy snack and hit the gym!  Women’s Health has some great recommendations on what to eat, as well as what to avoid.  You can pick any of them up at Cafe Beyond!

Here are a few recommendation on where you can boost your fitness:  McBurney YMCA, Chelsea Piers Health Club, Crunch Chelsea, Randi Zinn and Progressive Personal Training.

Get a massage and shampoo, or a classic mani-pedi. But make sure you go somewhere close by to avoid wasting precious time in transit, and always make an appointment. You can eat  while getting pampered.  Short lunch breaks are also a great time to catch up on small beauty fixes — get a trim, pluck your eyebrows or just a relaxing facial.

Here are a few places you can treat yourself:  Exhale Mind Body Spa, Red Market Salon, Vada Spa or Angel Feet Reflexology are all great options!
